* MurderIsTheBestSolution: At least, if you ask our protagonists. The Balladeer's part of "Another National Anthem" is smashing this trope to pieces. The assassins don't listen to him.

* FunnyForeigner: Subverted with Giuseppe Zangara in two ways: first, as he mentions in "How I Saved Roosevelt," he's a (naturalized) American citizen. Second, in the scene where he begs Oswald to go through with killing Kennedy, he chooses to speak Italian, with the other assassins translating for him, proving he's more [[EloquentInMyNativeTongue eloquent in his native tongue]]. It's also oddly referenced with Czolgosz: according to the script, he was "born in the middle of Michigan," making him an American citizen, but he comments that he comes down in history as a "deranged immigrant." (And he still has a vaguely Eastern European accent.)
